Coagh United

Karl Steele (29)
Jonathan Courtney (77)


Richard Thompson (46)



Coagh United earned themselves three vital points in a relegation battle which is destained to go the whole way to the final day.

Dollingstown were reduced to ten men after just 24 minutes when Martin Hughes was sent off for a dangerous tackle.

Coagh took the lead on 29 minutes when defender Karl Steele shot from fully 30 yards and it flew past the 'keeper low into the bottom corner. 

Dollingstown got the perfect start to the second half when once again their talisman Richard Thompson pulled them level with a fantastic individual goal which saw him leave at least three defenders in his wake before firing high into the net.

On 55 minutes Jason Gillespie beat Aaron Moffett down the touchline but Shane McPartland in DFC goals pulled off a great save.

Coagh secured all three points in the 77th minute when a John Courtney's shot from distance deflected over the 'keeper and into the goal.
